Julian  Assange’s detention “sets a dangerous precedent for journalists”,  according to politicians from the Council of Europe’s parliamentary arm,  who voted to oppose the WikiLeaks founder’s extradition to the US.  #NoJulian4US  https://www.theguardian.com/media/2020/jan/28/julian-assange-detention-sets-dangerous-precedent-for-journalists   


A US grand jury has indicted #JulianAssange on 18 charges, 17 of which  fall under the Espionage Act, he is charged with conspiracy to receive,  obtain, disclose classified diplomatic & military documents. They  are extraditing Assange for the crime of journalism #NoJulian4US

“The  extradition of an Australian or Italian journalist by the US would just  as easily justify the same action by Saudi Arabia and Russia… an  extra-territorial extension of US power to punish the world’s  scribblers, bloggers and publishers.” #NoJulian4US  https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/01/28/split-hearings-the-assange-extradition-case-drags-on/   


Assange’s  extradition hearing begins in London on February 24th The British  courts will decide whether to flagrantly disregard fundamental  democratic principles and dispatch him to his American state persecutors  where by law he will not be able to present a defense #NoJulian4US   


Assange  has already served a 50-week prison sentence in Britain for jumping  bail. A rape investigation launched against him in Sweden has been  dropped, so he would likely be freed from prison if extradition is  denied. If the extradition is granted journalism dies #NoJulian4US   


Assange  has been charged with 17 counts of espionage for publishing the  government’s documents exposing US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan  and torture in Guantanamo Bay. Journalism is not espionage. #NoJulian4US   https://dailytimes.com.pk/542858/why-assange-extradition-case-matters-to-our-democracy/

“@wikileaks  has radically changed the media landscape.

Assange  is not an American citizen. WikiLeaks, is not a U.S.-based publication.  The extradition of Assange would mean that international journalist do  not have freedom of speech and it will end journalistic investigations  that expose power. #NoJulian4US  https://www.commondreams.org/views/2020/02/10/what-happening-assange-will-happen-rest-us  


 Assange  is being held in the notorious high-security HM Prison Belmarsh. He has  spent much of his time in isolation, he’s heavily sedated & has  been denied medical treatment. His lawyers say they are routinely denied  access to him. #NoJulian4US  https://www.commondreams.org/views/2020/02/10/what-happening-assange-will-happen-rest-us  


 “He  had hard evidence of US war crimes now the country guilty of the war  crimes is trying to get a hold of him. For the Australian government to  go along with this is unconscionable. The whole thing is mad from start  to finish.” – @WilkieMP #NoJulian4Us  https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/australian-mps-to-meet-julian-assange-in-london-20200214-p540yu.html   


“One  of the largest petitions ever tabled in Australia’s parliament—now  signed by 280,000 people—was presented in the House of Representatives,  calling for freedom for @WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.” Hands off  Assange! #NoJulian4US #FreeAssange  https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2020/02/13/parl-f13.html

The  first Right our founding fathers wrote down was freedom of speech, yet  today we have become a country that uses its own powerful influences to  silence not only American citizens but citizens of other countries as  well. Stand up against the extradition of Assange! #NoJulian4US   


Wikileaks  inspired revolutions that toppled governments without firing a single  bullet, @Wikileaks did it by spreading information and knowledge which  terrified global powers. Now Assange is facing extradition to the US for  exposing #US war crimes in #Iraq. #NoJulian4US


US  fighter pilots shot 30 mm cannons down on civilians & journalist  from Apache helicopter in Iraq, and those same soldiers then fired a  missile into a van driven by a dad taking his kids to school. Wikileaks  exposed these war crimes, that is journalism not espionage #Nojulian4US   


Julian  Assange and Chelsea Manning did not fire those 30 mm cannons and kill  civilians and journalist, the United States government did. If you  condemn Julian and Chelsea then you condone the war crimes they  sacrificed their liberty to expose. #NoJulian4US #FreeChelseaManning   


Julian  Assange exposed the media establishment as frauds and exposed our  entire political system for feigning democracy. That is why both sides  of the political spectrum want to see Julian burned at the stake,  extradited to the US and silenced. We must stand up #NoJulian4US
